Today, my girlfriend's dad called to say she wasn't allowed to come with me on a three-day trip on New Year's. He waited until Christmas to say it, even though we booked and paid for the trip nearly a month ago. Now he ruined both holidays. FML

If you're old enough to take a holiday alone together in the first place, then I assume you two are old enough consenting adults, so just ignore the dad and go ahead with the trip. Your relationship is your business only - other people can join you in on the fun if you let them, but they have no right to dismantle or obstruct it.

It could have been a trip with OP's family though. I know when I was 16 and 17 I had a long-term boyfriend and we went on trips with each other's families all the time. We were never left alone but I could see how OP's girlfriend's dad could have felt uneasy about her being in a similar situation. Although changing his mind a week beforehand isn't right.
